Attestation sequence

Once attestation is automatically or manually started, One Identity Manager creates an attestation case for each attestation object. Attestation cases record the entire attestation sequence. Each attestation step in the attestation case can be audit-proof reconstructed. The attestation cases for a policy collection are combined in one attestation run.

You can see attestation runs in the navigation view under the menu item Attestation runs. This is where you can monitor the status of the attestation cases. Attestation cases that were not yet subject to approval are grouped under Pending attestations. You can see the attestation cases that have been closed by attestors or One Identity Manager grouped under Completed attestations. The status of pending attestation cases is checked regularly by the DBQueue Processor. The Attestation check starts the check.

NOTE: Attestation cases are edited in the Web Portal. For more information about this, see the One Identity Manager Web Designer Web Portal User Guide.

Attestation is complete when the attestation case has been granted or denied approval. You specify how to deal with granted or denied attestations on a company basis.

TIP: One Identity Manager provides various default attestation procedures for different data situations and default attestation procedures. If you use these default attestation procedures, you can configure how you deal with denied attestations.

For more information, see Default attestation and withdrawal of entitlements.

Starting attestation

There are two ways for you to add attestation cases in the One Identity Manager. You can trigger attestation through a scheduled task or start selected objects individually.


  • The attestation policy for this attestation is set.

To start attestation using a scheduled task

  1. In the Manager, select the Attestation > Attestation policies category.

  2. Select the attestation policy in the result list and run the Change main data task.

  3. Enable the schedule entered in the Calculation schedule field.

    1. In the navigation view, select the Basic configuration data > Schedules category.

    2. Select the schedule in the result list and run the Change main data task.

    3. Set the Enabled option.

    4. Save the changes.

To start attestation for the selected objects

  1. In the Manager, select the Attestation > Attestation policies category.

  2. Select the attestation policy in the result list. Select the Change main data task.

  3. Select the Run attestation cases for single objects... task.

    This opens a separate window.

  4. In the Attestation column, select every object for which attestation is to be run.

  5. Click Run.

    Attestation cases are generated for the selected attestation objects. As soon as DBQueue Processor has processed the task, you will see the newly created attestation cases in the navigation view under the Attestation runs > <attestation policy> > Attestation runs > <year> > <month> > <day> > Pending attestations menu item.

  6. Click Close.

NOTE: Under certain circumstances, old, closed attestation cases are deleted from the One Identity Manager database when new attestation cases are added.

For more information about configuring schedules, see the One Identity Manager Operational Guide.

TIP: If it takes longer than 48 hours to generate new attestation cases, the process is canceled. You can adjust the timeout for generating attestation cases to suit your requirements. To do this, in Designer, change the value of the QER | Attestation | PrepareAttestationTimeout configuration parameter.

Additional tasks for attestation cases

Once you have started attestation for an attestation policy, you can monitor the attestation case in One Identity Manager. The task view contains different forms with which you can run the following tasks.

Attestation case overview

The overview form supplies you with the most important information about an attestation case. Here you can see the time by which an attestation case will be processed, depending on the processing time. One Identity Manager does not stipulate which actions are carried out if processing times out. Define your own custom actions or evaluations to deal with this situation.

To obtain an overview of an attestation case

  1. In the Manager, select the Attestation > Attestation runs > <attestation policy> > Attestation runs > <year> > <month> > <day> category.

  2. Select the Pending attestations or the Completed attestations filter.

  3. Select an attestation case from the result list.

  4. Select Attestation case overview.
